Medium-long grain carnaroli rice is an excellent choice for making
risotto. Its grains hold their shape better during the slow cooking
process (due to high quantities of amylose) and it offers liquid
absorption and starch release superior to Arborio rice.

Grown in Italy, this carnaroli is top quality, consisting of
carefully selected whole (unchipped) grains of rice. Their brilliant
white color is the result of being expertly polished (pearled) rather
than any sort of chemical bleaching. This process also leaves more of
the grains’ natural starch content intact for an even creamier risotto.
